As one of the nation’s premier juried art shows, the Juried Fine Art Show again will be a highlight of this year’s festival, with top artists from across the continent vying for cash awards totaling $7,500. It will showcase art in a variety of media, including ceramics, digital art, drawing, fabric/fiber/leather, glass, graphics/printmaking, jewelry, metal, mixed media 2D, mixed media 3D, painting, photography, sculpture, and wood. Artists come from all over North America to display, share and sell their work. Festival patrons have the opportunity to peruse works at more than 140 artist booth spaces.
Artists in attendance will include some of the finest in their respective media. Returning visitors will recognize the amazing portraits of Tampa, Fla.-based Walt Majewski, who has been participating in the festival since the inaugural event and is known for painting in his booth. Another Florida resident and new this year is David Burton. Burton’s mixed-media work in dark charcoal tones nearly jump off the wall and are not to be missed! New York-based artist Carol Hearty’s whimsical, yet very fine leather purses in a tent of her own design will draw patrons in immediately. These artists and the more than 100 others will amaze and delight art fans of all tastes and background.
